ACLI_v1_0 PDFLIB, version 3.10 CPC 75(1993)396

Nature of problem:
First and higher order QED radiative corrections to the lepton nucleon deep inelastic scattering; virtual electroweak and QCD corrections to the process; QCD corrections to structure functions.

Solution method:
Numerical integration of analytical formulae.

Unusual features:
Other libraries called:
KERNLIB [1]; FFREAD - part of PACKLIB [2]; DIZET - an electroweak library [3]; optionally possible: PDFLIB [4].

Running time:
The running time strongly depends upon the options used. One finds e.g.: LLA, leptonic variables, NC, 25 points: about 25 sec. (CPU time), full O(alpha) + O(alpha**2) LLA + soft exponentiation + electroweak non- running couplings, leptonic variables, NC, 25 points: about 600 sec.
